Clutter and Gabkad, thanks for your advice 12 days ago to continue on a lowered Levo dose of 125 mcg ( from a few days on 250 which seems to have caused Reverse T3 at top of range 35/35. I replied to your replies today but think I'd I post afresh it will get noticed.
I feel under medicated on the 125, although it was my dose for years. I raised to 250 over the months since March, thinking I needed more. My OTT results alarmed me:
FT4. 31.92 (12-24)
FT3 5.1. (3.1-6.8)
RT3. 35. (9-35)
This was in late June. Received results a month later and immediately lowered levothyroxine despite having normal stamina for the first time in two years. You have advised that RT3 will dissipate over 6-12 weeks of the lower thyroxine dose, 125. But what then? Will the 125 mcg Levo feel enough, once the RT3 blockage has freed up the cells to let medicine in? I could wait 6-12 weeks for that to happen, if this is the idea. I could test RT3 again, but the point is to feel better, have normal energy, not to pass a paper test. I realise you haven't got a crystal ball, but do you suspect that after lowering the RT3 I will then feel as if my 125 thyroxine dose is a good dose and I can operate normally?
Can't wait for October, if so!
